The Alvar Aalto Foundation has begun a collaborative project with Google to make Aalto buildings even more accessible to the public. Using Google’s revolutionary Street View navigation tool, along with its virtual Cultural Institute, the project offers a look inside some of Aalto’s most iconic works of architecture. Learn more about this initiative and see the virtual journey for yourself after the break.

Nine Aalto-designed sites will be featured on this new platform, including Finlandia Hall, Studio Aalto, and even some lesser-known sites such as Tehtaanmäki Primary School. “Sharing information about Aalto and comprehensively responding to the needs of our various audiences is fundamental to our work,” Director of the Alvar Aalto Foundation, Tommi Lindh said. “This collaboration is a major step by the Alvar Aalto Foundation towards better accessibility and visibility. We want to be accessible to everyone who does not have a chance to visit our sites in person.”

The collaboration will also feature two online exhibitions through Google’s Cultural Institute. One exhibition is based on Aalto’s popular Museum-produced exhibition entitled "A Stool Makes History," while the other explores the newly restored Alvar Aalto Library in Vyborg.
